Proxy researcher Glass Lewis & Co. has rolled out its ESG Watch List Service, a tool that enables Glass Lewis' proxy voting clients to track companies with environmental, social or governance policies and/or practices that may create operational, performance, financial, legal or accounting risks. The service incorporates ratings from IW Financial, a provider of research, analytics and consulting services that enable investors to incorporate ESG factors into the investment process. ESG Watch List Service notifies users when the practices or the ESG performance of a company within their portfolio approaches a level that may be of concern based on evaluation criteria established for the list by the client. Glass Lewis ViewPoint clients can set up one or more pre-set profiles, or can elect to create custom profiles for rating the 3,000 U.S. companies in the Glass Lewis-IW Financial databank.
